CMMN SWDN'S Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund - who both worked on Kanye West's abandoned womenswear and Pastelle lines, FYI - flung themselves back in time with their ’70s-flavored presentation at London Collections Men. Titled "Domus" - that's latin for 'home' - the brand's menswear was infused with fabrics and textures that harked back to the decade's interior design, pitched against a fittingly retro wooden backdrop.

"This season was about looking at clothes as an extension of your home," Bakir explained. That domestic vision manifested itself with rich colors and drab patterns, which were liberally splashed over classic menswear pieces. Cow hair biker jackets, plush blousons and lambskin suede trousers (which Hedlund assured were in fact surprisingly comfortable) kept things simultaneously chic and kitsch, with a reversible duffel coat finishing off a pretty heavy-duty set of throwback outerwear.

Chelsea boots marked the brand's first-ever foray into footwear, which were modified with a moccasin-style stitch and some pretty ostentatious pony hair fabrications, although there were some staple leather and suede numbers for those who'd rather keep things a little more tame.

The Swedish label's ’70s revivalism didn't mean the collection was stuck in the past, though. Hidden among the nostalgia were relaxed, elasticated trousers, quarter-zip track tops and nylon anoraks. Clearly Bakir and Hedlund are determined to keep one foot firmly in the present day, making CMMN SWDN's FW16 offering one that looks back in time while still catering to 21st century tastes and trends.
